PhD students and faculty are invited to submit their ideas to The Conversation”.  They ask authors to please sign up and then pitch an article idea, rather than email a fully written article to the editors. Here are some of the topics they are looking for:

Education

Seeking research on esports at colleges and universities. Are they ruled by the same regulations governing post-secondary athletics? Have they been affected by COVID-19?

Deadline: Jan. 7

Editor: Susannah Schmidt, susannah.schmidt@theconversation.com

Arts

Looking for commentary on Islamic art and patterns: Islamic art and design has long been concerned with pattern, and has also influenced western design, as noted in a French exhibit, Cartier and Islamic Art: In Search of Modernity. 

Deadline: Dec. 10

Editor: Susannah Schmidt, susannah.schmidt@theconversation.com

Culture + Society:

The history of holiday lights and how they came to be what they are today.

Deadline: Dec. 6 

I’m looking for pitches that are generally tied to the holidays and new year, from authors who have never written for us before, as well as those who have.

Deadline: ASAP

Holiday movies are wildly popular, but they also have some problems — a lack of diversity being one of the biggest. I’m looking for a critical-race analysis of these shows.

Deadline: Dec. 6

Editor: Haley Lewis, haley.lewis@theconversation.com 

Environment & Energy:

The heat dome, wildfires, COP26 and now atmospheric rivers — 2021 has been a busy year for environmental stories. I’m looking for a list of stories readers should be on the lookout for in 2022.

Deadline: Nov. 29

Editor: Hannah Hoag, hannah.hoag@theconversation.com

Science & Technology:

Two high-profile Instagram accounts have reposted content from Zoom court hearings, despite publication bans. We’re looking for stories that examine how social media and internet technologies facilitate the collection and dissemination of information in ways that both support and undermine democracy.

Deadline: ASAP

We’re looking for stories on the science of ice — its physical and chemical properties, the surprising ways in which it contradicts expectations, its historical, social and cultural contexts, its applications as a material and its environmental roles.

Deadline: ASAP

Editor: Nehal El-Hadi, nehal@theconversation.com

Earlier this week, a teenager from Hamilton, Ont., was arrested in connection to one of the largest cryptocurrency heists. We’re looking for articles on new internet crimes, the histories of online heists and the high value of cryptocurrency.

Deadline: ASAP

We’re looking for articles on the history of taste: how does our sense of taste develop, how has it evolved and changed over time, trends in tastiness and research into future flavours.

Deadline: ASAP

Editor: Nehal El-Hadi, nehal@theconversation.com

We ask authors to please sign up and then pitch an article idea, rather than email a fully written article to the editors.
